What are things to keep in mind before buying a new car?


Engineer at KW Group | Posted

While buying a car, you are making a long term deal and therefore you should be as judicious as you can. Some of the things that must not be ignored at any cost when you are choosing a car for yourself are as follows:

• A new car should be used at least eight years to get a full return on investment. So if you buy a car in December, it would become an old model just the next month, which would affect the price at which you would sell your car.

• According to the more experienced, the price of a car should not be more than 60% of your annual take-home income. The big discounts on bigger cars may entice you but they the price may not suit your pocket positively.

• You should think judiciously when choosing between the petrol, diesel or CNG car. Petrol car are cheaper than the diesel cars, but petrol is costlier than diesel. So the choice depends on the usage and travel.  

• Try getting more than one (at least two) test drives. It is recommended to have at least two test drives so that you are sure about you and your family’s comfortability.

Buying a new car confuses a majority of people and many times you end up buying a car that makes you regret later. Below are some handy tips that will help you for sure:


1. Mileage

Petrol and diesel prices are soaring day by day and choosing a car that is not fuel friendly will cost on your pocket in the long run. Buy a car that offers you at least 15 km/l average.


2. Maintenance


Many people buy a car without thinking about its cost of service and maintenance. Year by year, these expenses increase and you may not be able to afford them. Buy a car which service and maintenance you can easily afford.


3. Resale Value


According to a study, the most drivers change their cars once every 5 years. So, if you are planning to buy a new car, go for such cars which have good resale value in the market.


4. Choose according to your need

You should always go for a car that is neither too big nor small. If you will have many passengers then you can buy big SUVs otherwise they are made for people who drive off road.


5. Offers and Discounts

The best period to buy a new car during the month end December. A lot of dealers at the end of year gives huge offers and discounts to get rid of last year’s model.
